I gamble but I’ve never been on magical Vegas’ site.
I’ve never bought anything from Fisons or Pioneer.
Greene King I’ve invested heavily in over the years but that didn’t need shirt sponsorship to make it happen.
I just don’t, personally, see the point of it. I don’t go to away clubs and look at their shirts and think “wow, I must get some mustard on my way home” or “I really should paint my living from with Crown Paints” (I cant remember who Liverpool are sponsored by now). You can barely read what most shirts say unless you’re watching on tv anyway.
It’s been a very interesting tournament and it has caused many talking points throughout;
It’s won a lot of new supporters, including many more men.
VAR nearly killed it and now VAR needs a dose of VAR (a much closer look at how it should work).
I think the quality of the teams in the latter stages has proved the goals don’t need to be made smaller but the performance of keepers (still) needs to improve.
Politics and sport will always jar on the big stage. The media has made way more of certain issues than was needed and gone fishing for some that didn't really exist. There were also moments where sexism was claimed by players and it really wasn’t there. For me, women’s football is big enough to ignore comparisons now and should actually show its strength by not getting drawn into this area.
USA: A prime example of when confidence becomes arrogance. I don’t care about the goal celebration - I love a controversial celebration as it shows character - it’s the inability to accept criticism when they sportswomanship wrong. When nobody else behaves like you, that’s normally a measure of when to tone it down a bit.
I know it's League One and the Carabao bloody Cup (only tinpot teams bother winning this...) but as soon as the fixtures are out, I look forward to the season ahead, however poorly we've performed leading up to this point.
